Hey guys,

I will graduate with an LLB from Durham this summer and am deciding whether to go to BPP or Uni of Law for my LPC. I don't have a TC yet, and my decision will hinge on this.

I am particularly interested in applying to American firms (i.e. Weil, Skadden, Latham etc). As far as I can see, the firms seem 50/50 on the LPC providers.

So does it matter which one I pick?

Thanks!

Really doesn't matter. They only have a preference for LPC providers as they have a preferential rate they pay for sponsored course places. If you are doing the LPC of your own accord, it doesn't matter where you do it as you are not on a sponsored course.

I wouldn't be rushing into the LPC without sponsorship, especially for the type of firm you are aiming for, and where the LPC might not be the best route in less than 9 months time.
Thank you for the information!

Honestly, not that great. But there are plenty of resources available so I have been fine muddling through. I didn't want to apply for corporate/commercial firms and this appears to be where their knowledge of firms is. I know some people have great experiences so I might have been unlucky. They are happy to read through applications, check your CV etc so that has been helpful
